The Newer Stranger...

It gets better every time I get on it.

Ducati S4RS

The S4RS is back on the streets. Peel back the throttle... lift the front wheel. Like no other bike I've ever ridden. I wish this one was mine. Huge thanks to Eric Sedei, he turns most of the wrenches that keep things going at the shop. And, John K., he's the guy responsible for the aluminum work on this bike. Get a load of that front fender. Legit!! Thanks again, John

An Old Friend Came By The Shop Last Week...

Bad Idea...

Danny Foremans S&S Powered 1980 FLH

Al and I originally did this bike for Danny a few years back. At the time, it was running okay so we didn't do much with the motor. However, he's always had a little trouble keeping up with the pack. He's owned the bike for over twenty years and wasn't ready to turn his back on it. When he asked us what he should do.  We told him, the only real cure is the S&S 93" Shovelhead. It's a different bike now, what a great motor.          

The Ultimate Non Chopper Post

We get a lot of crazy shit rolling through our door but, this has to be the most mental so far. The Roland Sands Designs Ducati Desmosedici RR Street Tracker. The quality of  work they did on this thing is spectacular. There's definitely a reason so many motorcycle manufacturers look to these guys to help promote their bikes. Check it out...

2003 Harley Davidson Fat Boy For Sale

This semi-bagger belongs to good customer of ours and is up for grabs. We did this bike a few years back but these picks were taken just last week. PM, RSD, Works Performance, Baker, S&S, Schultz Designs, Corbin, and the list goes on. The bike itself has just under 5000 miles on it. We did the motor (95", Screaming Eagle CNC ported heads, S&S gear drive cams) and the Baker 6speed at just under the 3000 mile mark. Paint work and bags done in 2009 and still looks great. 
The owner is 70 years old and not a thrasher and as you can see, the bike is well cared for. Just says he no longer feels comfortable riding. 
If you or anyone you know are looking for a very respectable, low mile, and ready to ride custom Harley Davidson, this one is worth a look. He wants $13,500 and financing is available. If your interested, give me a call 714-903-8042 and I'll give you his contact info.

Ducati S4RS Project

This Ducati project is long overdue. Since we don't work on these things every day, there was a lot to learn. The bike itself has been pretty much put back together for month or so. But the paint was hung up at the painters all summer. It finally showed up on Friday and it looks killer. If you're not familiar with Ducatis, the S4RS is the serious Monster. This thing is going to be fun...  It's back on the table now!

Just When You Think You've Seen It All.

 I guess what they say about history repeating itself is true. This is a Gold Wing, think about that for a second.

2013 Triumph Scrambler Project

The Scrambler is underway. One of the first things was to cut some pounds and, this is one area you can cut quite a bit. We still need have a ways to go to get it down to fighting weight, though. Stick around...

2013 Triumph Scrambler Project

This thing is in the process of getting a bit of a make-over. Stick around... 

This Little Gem...

...rolled up to the shop last Saturday. From inside the shop, it sounded like someone rolled up with a serious problem. When I got out there, it was this 1929 JD making all the racket. Very cool to see it on the road.

Biltwell Gringo Helmets Are In...

 The guys with there finger on the pulse of  motorcycling trends have got another hit on there hands. Their new Gringo full face helmets are DOT approved and nearly a perfect replica of  the Bell, Star full face helmets from the early '70s. The fit and finish of these new helmets are really nice, too. Available in flat black, gloss black, white, orange, and some other color I can't remember right now. But that doesn't really matter because the white or the orange really take you back in time.
